Roseanne Barr Seeks Green Party Presidential Nod
abc ^ | 2/2/2012 | ANDREW MIGA Associated Press

Posted on 02/02/2012 7:02:50 PM PST by tobyhill

Roseanne Barr said Thursday she's running for the Green Party's presidential nomination — and it's no joke.

The actress-comedian said in a statement that she's a longtime supporter of the party and looks forward to working with people who share her values. She said the two major parties aren't serving the American people.

"The Democrats and Republicans have proven that they are servants -- bought and paid for by the 1 percent -- who are not doing what's in the best interest of the American people," Barr said.

Occupy Wall Street protesters popularized the "We are the 99 percent" slogan in their fight against economic disparity and perceived corporate greed.

This just further proves that there is no front-runner who is worth electing.

How about the Blue Party instead? She can just hold her breath until she turns the color of her party.

It sounds to me like Roseanne may be upset that she’s not part of the 1% anymore. Well, being a has been can really play hell with the bank accounts.

Now Obama and Roseanne can compete for the “Green vote” and “99%ers”.

I am damn sure not part of the 1%.

You can also bet that I am not a part of the alledged 99% these turds represent.

That 99% is one of the biggest lies ever told, Can’t be over 1% operating in the direct oposite direction of the original/

Now Rose Ann. She hasn’t worked lately and I suppose she needs the publicity. I have a 40 watt bulb in my icebox that is smarter than Rose Anne.

Weird-o. Does Barr, who has lots of stuff, know that the Green Party wants to abolish private property and limit salaries, among other stupid stuff.

Oh the humanity, oh the angst. Look if Barr steals a few thousand votes from Bama and some Dems in varied states, good for her. She is a lout but a lout that could take a few votes away from a bigger lout.

She said she wanted to bring back the guillotine and people’s wealth should be limited to one hundred million dollars.

Hey, she's got the name recognition... Maybe she will manage to pull enough radical feminists and environmentalist from Obama to cost him the election.

I’d even give her some campaign advice. She should make the rounds of the Occupy sites. They’d just love her.

I know that was all in fun, but Sam Nunn was a more conservative Democrat than a large number of Republicans.

I heard Roseanne is worth around $80 million.

She’s nuttier than a can of Planter’s peanuts, but really quite wealthy.

Please let this POS run, because there will be a number of morons who will vote for her instead on the socialist thug, just because she’s “famous”.

If they run someone who nobody knows that’s more votes for the Alinsky socialist. So please pick a celebrity to run for the Green Party and a bunch of idiots will vote for that person and not Obambi.

“Sam Nunn was a more conservative Democrat than a large number of Republicans.”

I know, especially on defense (though, as I recall, he ended up wasting much of his credibility defending Bill Clinton, The Great Corrupter).

She is running in the primary against Dr. Jill Stein, a physician and Magna (or maybe Suma) cum Laude Harvard graduate. I would guess a person with more substance, but less fame.

Before she can run against Obama, she has to beat Dr. Jill Stein in the Green Party primary.

I bet she’ll do pretty well in Georgia if the other leftist doesn’t make the November ballot there.

Roseanne barr is not a stable woman so the media likes to put her on all the time so people will want to see what kind of sick stuff she’s doing this time.
She’s like a gas pain.
Ouch and move on....

Do you mean “queer” as in odd, or as in homosexual?
